Cubs Are Making Noise

ZambranoCubs have won 7 straight.  They have had at least 10 hits in each of the last 7 games.  Derrek Lee is batting .389 and is 11 for his last 13 at bats (8 for 8 in his last two games).  The pitching is getting better even without Prior and Wood, including a 1 hitter yesterday (Zambrano) and a 4 hit shutout tonight (Rusch). 

UPDATE 6.6.05: Good article on Derrek Lee on the front page of today.

This is fun baseball, and the race for the playoffs is getting tight.  After a pitiful beginning of the season, this may be an interesting summer after all
